What is being done with Lyme disease? I am making a website to aware people of Lyme disease and need to know what is being done with Lyme disease.
There : There is a lot of heated controversy surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of lyme disease. Two organizations, the infectious disease society of america and the international lyme and associated diseases society have published treatment guidelines that are quite different in their view of this illness. Ilads supports the validity of chronic lyme disease as a real and common occurred that should be treated with antibiotics and supportive therapies until symptoms resolve, and that other tick born infections should be considered and tested for in the patient who does not recover with adequate treatment of the lyme infection. Idsa does not acknowledge the existence of chronic lyme disease and proposes a treatment of 3-4 weeks with doxycycline. If the patient continues to have symptoms following this treatment, ongoing antibiotics are not recommended and the symptoms are attributed to a newly proposed "syndrome" called "post lyme disease syndrome" which is basically a psychosomatic or inflammatory response and should be treated with antidepressants, anti-inflammatory drugs or pain medications, but not antibiotics. www.ilads.org can give you more information on this from the perspective of treating chronic lyme disease and this website will give you the idsa perspective: www.Idsociety.Org/lyme/ some good patient and family oriented information can be found at www.Lymedisease.Org.
